      Well I got 89% so not too bad.

      I can't see a block bet here and opted for check/fold. If I check and villain is passive he will be very unlikely to either bluff or bet weaker hands, I'd be happy with the showdown in this spot. I just don't see villain calling even $5 with say 99 TT on that board after the King hits; possibly a weaker Jack is all, just possibly.
      Likely he'd only call with a bare King to.

      But I play nl2 so...:)

      Can you give me a range villain might call a block bet with in your opinion/experience please?

      you're betting for value, if you check you should probably play ch/fold against passive villan.
      There's far more weaker jacks in his range than some 5x or Kx.

      Im rather disappointed by my 26 points :f_frown:

      About Q5...

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with
      Hero raises $1.00, MP calls $1.00, 1 fold, BU calls $1.00, 1 fold, BB calls $1.00

      Flop: ($4.10) Jc5d5h (4 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $2.70, MP calls $2.70, 2 folds

      Turn: ($9.50) Kc (2 players)

      Why not check the turn for pot control vs a K or even something like A5. I doubt we have more than 2 streets of value there, even versus a stationy villain, and by checking we might get 88, 99, TT to call a river bet. Although...he doesnt have many 5s in his range or kings (on the turn) for that matter, just KJ and AK maybe.
